5 comments on “Re-Think Homosexuality

  1. For the Bible-believing Christian there is no such a conflict?
    Have you actually read the Bible? Because there are wonderful instructions about stoning certain people.
    Deu, 22:21 – ” Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.”

  2. In actuality that is exactly what one needs to do in order to rightly divide the word and interpret scripture accurately.

    The Bible says, “Study to show yourself approved to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2nd Timothy 2:15

    There’s a division between the Old and the New Covenants (Testaments) and we need to understand the significance of that.

    Not everything that is written in the bible is relevant for this time period we’re living in and one needs to know what is applicable and what is not.

    That may sound like an excuse to arbitrarily pick and choose scripture but it is not.

    There are many laws God gave to Israel under the Old Covenant that are not in force today under the New Covenant we’re living in.

    Deut 22:21 is a perfect example of such a law.

    As a mater of fact, most of the laws found in the books of Deuteronomy and Leviticus were only valid under the Old Covenant and are not applicable to anyone living today.

    Principles that predate the Old Covenant like Gen 1:28 are still valid today because they are not specifically associated with the Old Covenant which was done away with to make way for the New.

    As a general rule you will find that the few Old Covenant laws that are still valid today are usually repeated somewhere in the New Testament.

    Like laws against Homosexuality for instance, Leviticus 20:13 says, “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act.”

    We know that God still looks at Homosexuality the same way because His views are reiterated in New Testament scripture.

    Romans 1: 26-27 says, “God let them follow their own evil desires. Women no longer wanted to have sex in a natural way, and they did things with each other that were not natural.

    Men behaved in the same way. They stopped wanting to have sex with women and had strong desires for sex with other men.

    They did shameful things with each other, and what has happened to them is punishment for their foolish deeds.”

    I hope this explanation clarifies some things for you.
